Thank you for your help.
Jeremiah (aka Jerry) Groves was born Sept. 1813 in Belmont County, Ohio. His sister wrote his death date as: 11 May 1882.
I have found no proof of his death in Missouri City, MO though a relative believes it to be true.
The last location I found him living was the 1880 federal census in Galena, Jasper Co, MO.
His 2nd wife Nancy Richardson Brumet and their two sons later moved to Pueblo, CO.
